I Wanna Be Literated #220

Empowered and the Soldier of Loveby Adam Warren and Karla Diaz You gotta love an underdog. And if you love comics, that means you gotta love Adam Warren. I’m surprised someone of his talent isn’t more of a household name, but at the same time, I kinda like that about him. Have the best bands in history ever been the most popular? The Ramones? The Clash? Nope. The Beatles? Well, maybe. But someone like Adam Warren has been making highly...

In addition to that he’s also underappreciated. His contribution to the Dirty Pair franchise was funny, innovative, looked great, and somehow just kept getting better. And it’s this same unique sensibility that Warren was able to bring to Gen13. In a run that included so many ups and downs, Warren’s issues were consistent high points...

I Wanna Be Literated! #127

Empowered Unchained Volume 1 by Adam Warren You want to learn a thing or two about comics, go ahead and read Adam Warren. The man gets punk rock DIY with his “mainstream” comics. Or about as mainstream as one can get without getting jumbled up in the messy tripe that the “big two” are involved with. I say punk rock, because Adam Warren has figured out how to make it in comics on his own terms, and completely in control...
